Compassion, Guard Your Heart
“Ladies and gentleman, Fear the Rabbi!”
These aren’t exactly the words you’d expect to hear during the introductions of a mixed martial arts fight. But Rabbi Yossi Eilfort wanted to show his congregation that physical fitness is important.

How do you decide is your fight is from God?
